The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the most sacred days of the year, loved by Allah (SWT). Therefore, by giving to Green Lane Masjid you can reap the rewards of this blessed month. As Allah tells us in the Holy Qur’an:

“So turn in prayer towards your Lord 
and sacrifice.” (108:2)

So, as we remember the struggle and dedication of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice for the sake of Allah, make your sacrifice with Green Lane Masjid and support a family in need.

  • Right now a staggering 1 in 9 people are battling with chronic hunger.
  • By sacrificing what we have to help those in need, We offer crucial solidarity and hope.
  • However, there is hope: by giving Qurbani you can feed a family in need this Eid.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions on Qurbani

According to most Muslims, Qurbani is obligatory upon every sane adult Muslim male/female who has wealth in excess to his/her needs. Normally those who are eligible to pay Zakat are obliged to give Qurbani.

Our policy is to make sure that the selected beneficiaries of the Qurbani project are made eligible based on a scoring system, which ranks families according to need. The scoring system is based on the following objective criteria:

  • Families who live on less than the minimum income for that particular country
  • Female-headed households
  • Families with disabled and/or elderly persons
  • Children under five years’ old
  • Pregnant women
  • Breastfeeding mothers
  • Families with little or no access to the market

A thorough needs assessment will be conducted to objectively identify the weighting and priority of each of the above criteria. These are then applied when selecting beneficiaries to ensure we reach the neediest without bias or subjectivity in selection.

No, this is not necessary as long as you have made the intention that you are giving this Qurbani on behalf of a certain person.

Fresh Qurbani – Our animals are purchased and slaughtered locally which also helps to boost the local economy.

As with our other projects, our work is constantly monitored and audited. Reports are also produced each year showing what activities have taken place in each country.

The deadline for Qurbani payment is Wednesday 29th July 2020.

Since Qurbani is an act of worship that is the most beloved to Allah (SWT) during the days of Tashreek, it is important that one offers the best possible offering. Therefore we try to adopt high quality standards when it comes to selecting the sacrificial animals. Standards cover health, weight (meat yielded) and age.

We would also like our brothers and sisters around the world to receive the best quality Qurbani because the believer is asked to love for his brother/sister that which he/she loves for him/herself. These high standards therefore come at a higher cost which in turn further supports economic development of our Qurbani farmers.

We always try to reach the most vulnerable people in the most remote areas where the communities are hard to reach. Transporting meat to hard-to-reach rural areas incurs higher transportation costs which in turn affects the Qurbani price. Conflict or disasters can make distribution more difficult and can add to the cost.

Yes, all the various expenses such as the cost of the animal, slaughter, butchering, transportation, storage, selection of the beneficiaries, and distribution are included in the price.

Qurbani in 2020 will be performed after the Eid Salah in each country. The slaughter will take place from after the Eid prayer on Eid al-Adha (10th Dhul Hijjah) and ends up to sunset of the 13th Dhul Hijjah. 

Animals chosen in a country are dependent upon:

  • The suitability of the meat to the local diet
  • The cost of the animal
  • The location and the availability of animals
  • The quality of the meat

You are allowed to offer more than one sacrifice. The Prophet (SAW) himself carried out multiple Qurbani for himself and the Ummah.

It is recommended for the one who wants to offer a sacrifice, once the new moon of Dhul Hijjah appears (i.e. on the 1st of Dhul Hijjah), not to remove anything from his hair, nails or skin, until he has offered the sacrifice.

Regardless of the country in which your Qurbani is being carried out, you can trim your hair and nails once the Eid prayer has been completed in your locality.
